Hard to consider a boon to scaling, with the airgap being an extra space, so to speak.

Yes, that's right. I was at DEC in the late '80s and we were evaluating whether or not to use 4K GaAs Srams from GigaBit Logic in a new mainframe being designed. They used air bridges in their process to reduce the line capacitance.

Airgaps aren't really new. TriQuint used air gaps in their GaAs process in the mid 90's. It not at the scale Intel is talking about, but the structure was an airgap.

Nice to see new technology to further improve the process with smaller geometry.

How do they control the this structural bending ?
